The senseFly S.O.D.A. is the first camera to be designed for professional drone photogrammetry. It captures amazingly sharp aerial RGB images, across a range of light conditions, allowing you to produce detailed, vivid orthomosaics and highly precise digital surface models.
The new senseFly Corridor adapter is the combined hardware and software solution, greatly simplifying the data collection of jobs with infrastructural dron and linear locations.
SenseFly Corridor is compatible with any eBee Plus or eBee RTK that carries a senseFly S.O.D.A. camera.
Sequoia is the smallest, lightest multispectral sensor ever released. It captures images across four defined, visible and non-visible spectral bands, plus RGB imagery, in just one flight.
The Sequoia multispectral sensor captures both visible and invisible images, providing calibrated data to optimally monitor the health and vigor of your crops. Sequoia captures calibrated wavelength, Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared to highlight the health of plants.
Like all eBee cameras, this 18.2 MP model has been adapted so that it can be controlled by the drone’s autopilot. It acquires regular image data in the visible spectrum and its exposure parameters are set automatically.
Example applications: geo-referenced 2D orthomosaics, 3D point clouds, triangle models and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), real colour 2D and 3D visual rendering.
The 20 MP G9X RGB acquires regular image data in the visible spectrum. However unlike the default supplied WX camera, its exposure parameters can be set manually and it can also output RAW format image files. The G9X also includes built in sand & dust protection for use in the most demanding locations.
Like all eBee Ag cameras, this customised 12 MP model has been adapted so that it can be controlled by the drone’s autopilot. It acquires image data in the near infrared (NIR) band, the region where high plant reflectance occurs. Its exposure parameters can be set manually and its RAW files are fully supported by the eBee Ag’s software.
Example applications: biomass indication, growth monitoring, crop discrimination, leaf area indexing.
Unlike the NIR camera above, the 12 MP S110 RE acquires data in the red edge band, the region where a plant’s reflectance changes from low to high. The S110 RE’s exposure parameters can also be set manually and its RAW files are fully supported by the eBee Ag’s software.
Example applications: plant stress assessment, chlorophyll indication, senescence analysis, drought assessment.
The multiSPEC 4C is a cutting-edge sensor unit developed by Airinov’s agronomy specialists and customised for the eBee Ag. It contains four separate 1.2 MP sensors that are controlled by the eBee Ag’s autopilot. These acquire data across four highly precise bands, plus each sensor features a global shutter for sharp, undistorted images.
Example applications: biomass indication, leaf area indexing, nitrogen recommendation, phenology and many more.
thermoMAP enables the eBee and eBee Ag to capture thermal video and still images, allowing you to create full thermal maps of a site (for example, to map water distribution, check irrigation systems or assess the functionality of solar panels).
Applications: water distribution management, irrigation checking, alternative method of plant stress analysis.
If you are planning to fly your eBee in extreme situations, such as those with high winds, in mountainous areas, out of line of sight, or over very large areas, this accessory is a useful final safeguard against unexpected aircraft loss. It comprises a small transmitter that fits snugly next to the eBee’s battery bay, plus a portable handheld receiver. Valid for eBee, eBee AG and eBee RTK.
Camera Protection Kit
This kit is an ideal add-on for customers who regularly fly in sandy or dusty environments. It is compatible with WX and IXUS eBee cameras, fitting snugly inside the eBee’s camera bay to create a physical barrier that prevents dust and dirt from entering. Includes a lens cap, replacement films, cleaning cloth and cleaning spray. Valid for eBee and eBee AG.
eMotion: Plan & control your flight
senseFly’s intuitive eMotion makes it easy to plan and simulate a mission.
Plan: Import your base map of choice and define the area you want to assess. Then specify your required ground resolution and image overlap. eMotion automatically generates a full flight plan, calculating the eBee Ag’s required altitude and displaying the trajectory. Flying over uneven terrain? Use eMotion’s 3D mission planning feature to take into account elevation data, improving ground resolution and increasing mission safety.
Simulate: To ensure your mission’s success, run a virtual flight that simulates wind strength and direction.
Pix4D: Professional photogrammetry
Use Pix4D software to easily process your flight’s photos.
Process: Once the eBee has landed, use Pix4D software to process your flight’s photos. In just a few clicks you can transform this imagery into geo- referenced 2D orthomosaics, 3D point clouds, triangle models and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs).
Trust: With the eBee’s GSD of down to 1.5 cm, relative orthomosaic/3D model accuracy of 1-3x GSD, and absolute horizontal/vertical accuracy of down to 3/5 cm, you can have full confidence in the accuracy of the outputs you produce.
